In 2007, Wallonia turns its attention to the military as the theme of its annual Heritage Days, or Journées du Patrimoine. Guided tours, exhibitions, recitals and markets take place at hundreds of sites throughout the region.
Citadels, forts, barracks, memorials and battlefields are all closely related to great or tragic events and still mark our landscapes in an indelible way. In this context, the Heritage Days aim to reposition Wallonia's military heritage through a series of questions about its possible future use, and its relationship with our collective memory.
Military buildings, units and sites are accessible for free throughout Wallonia. Please check the Heritage Days website for a detailed list of sites to visit.
